Personal Care activities include assisting with activities of daily living (ADL’s). These include those self-care activities that people must be able to perform every day to remain independent and to function effectively in society. Our support workers with help you daily activities such as:
- assisting clients with limited mobility to change positions or move from one place to another,
- medication reminders
The goal is to promote the client’s safety and physical comfort. While not responsible for medical and nursing activities, our team can coordinate our services with approved medical and nursing providers. We will be on the alert for and report any changes in the client’s behavior.
FAMILY SUPPORT OR RESPITE CARE
We recognize that families are part of the equation when considering home care. Our goal to ensure that the primary caregiver (family member responsible for the Client needs) can have some balance in their life or a break in the routine.
We help our clients experience and maximize their social activities. These types of activities provide our Clients with enjoyment, recreation and the ability to stay connected with friends, family and social network. Our team can help facilitate clients to be more independent such as being able to utilize everyday technology.
HOUSEKEEPING AND HOME MANAGEMENT

- light housekeeping,
- onsite meal preparation,
- event attendance
We provide this range of services as a means of maintaining quality of life for the client.

PEOPLE WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES
Mental health issues range from mild to severe. Some people can function normally but need help making decisions or coping with life stresses. Others are severely affective and need assistance with activities of daily living.

Rehabilitation is the process of restoring a person to the highest possible level of functioning with therapy, exercise or other methods that have been set out in instructions from a medical professional.
Some children who receive care have physical or intellectual disabilities. Others may need care because a parent has a medical challenge.
MOTHERS AND NEWBORNS AND CHILDREN
